The Import command returns a list containing both the header
information and the image data. To see the image, you need to strip
the header and plot the data portion of the file.

See http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica//newin42/import.html
for an example. The options for FITS import are documented in the
Further Examples section of the import documentation in the help
browser.
